Seeking a career at Saint Joseph Academy is not just any job at just any school. It is not your typical 9 to 5 job. Nor is it the typical Catholic school. Saint Joseph Academy is quite literally on the front lines of the battle for the eternal souls of our children. Parents choose us to educate their children and teens because we are the best at what we do: forming young men and women who-through their commitment to live by Catholic principles- will transform and advance human culture. That advancement is not toward nebulous vague social justice principles or toward comfort, money, or power. Our students go out into the world and seek to advance the culture around them toward virtue and heavenly beatitude.
We are a classical school that unapologetically integrates the intellectual and cultural traditions of the Catholic Church into everything we do and every class we teach. If that sounds like your personal mission in life, then we want to hear from you! St. Joseph Academy is an independent, classical, Catholic TK-12 school that teaches in accordance with the Magisterium. We are a member of NAPCIS (The National Association of Private Catholic and Independent Schools) and ICLE (Institution for Catholic Liberal Education).
Our current enrollment is 372 students, 97 of whom are in high school. We are seeking asecond high school literature/writing teacher for our 2023-2024 school year. Candidates must be loyal, practicing Catholics who are motivated, organized and possess a deep love for God, others, and a passion for communicating that love. A genuine affection and deep knowledge of classical literature and writing, together with valuing the importance of grammar, the great books, and the literary imagination rounds out the ideal candidate. Training and support is provided. We are located in beautiful San Diego County, just 15 minutes from the ocean.

About Saint Joseph Academy
St. Joseph Academy was established in response to the Second Vatican Council's call for greater lay witness in contemporary society. Teaching in accordance with the Magisterium of the Church, our mission is to form young men and women who, committed to live by Catholic principles, will transform and advance human culture. We aim to accomplish this by offering a traditional learning environment that blends faith and reason in educating the whole child.
Man was created by God in His image and likeness and therefore is destined for Him who is infinite perfection. In the spirit of the Divine Master, amidst a world of material possession, the mission of St. Joseph Academy is to prepare the child for what he must be and for what he must do here on earth, in order to gain the sublime end for which he was created. Our duty is to take great care in the Christian education of the youth.
